Far Cry 6’s original release would have pinned the title after a huge holiday line-up. Over the coming weeks, the company plans to release Watch Dogs: Legion, Assassin’s Creed: Valhalla, and Immortals: Fenyx Rising. In early 2021, both Riders Republic and Prince Of Persia: The Sands Of Time Remake plan to launch.
Big changes are also planned for the company’s service based platforms. It will be consolidating all of its previously released services into one package known as Ubisoft Connect. Users will be able to access a variety of unique features, as well as the ability to use game save data across any platform for specific games.
Microsoft is also welcoming Ubisoft to its Xbox Game Pass service, as Tom Clancy’s Rainbow Six: Siege recently joined the service.
